In the historical centre of Saarbrücken, close to Sankt Johanner Market Square, Fröschengasse – or: Frog’s Path – bends slightly as it runs along. Once a craftsman’s alley with the houses of the workers partly built onto the old town wall, it has been lovingly restored since 1978. Today, it is one of Saarbrücken’s most beautiful places to go for a stroll. The small buildings leaning against each other and lining the narrow alley were restored primarily in the baroque style, giving the street its characteristic charm. It is easily identified: An arch displaying the street’s name marks the alley’s entrance. Small shops, stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants invite tourists and locals. The very same alley is said to have been the path that frogs used from the banks of the Saar into the city, hence its name. A truly historical establishment on the corner of Am Stiefel and Fröschengasse is the inn „Zum Stiefel“. A sign is visible from far away. Built in 1718, the inn is probably the oldest of its kind in the city and has been going for nine generations at this very site...
